Chisel Plough



This implement attaches to the rear of the 2-wheel tractor, and is therefore pulled. It consists of a frame or bar that is horizontal to the ground, bolted to this are a number of vertical tines that have a curved ‘chisel’ point at the bottom end, to help them penetrate the ground, the number of tines can be altered, normally 1, 2 or 3. The tines are usually adjustable for depth and when they penetrate the ground they break the soil up without turning it at all. The chisel plough is therefore used to break up compacted soil. Once again this implement relies on traction / grip, the harder the soil the more grip and power you will need. Therefore you will need to consider the overall power and weight of the power unit along with the options of different wheel sizes, cage wheels and / or wheel weights.
